yppasswd length limit



dear all,
i hope that this is the right place to post this
query.

I have a few RHEL AS3 servers and some ws3 and rh8.0
desktops. we use nis server on a as3 to authenticate
users.

if the passwd is created/changed on the nis server
using passwd, it is ok and can be very long (up to
256char?) and users have to type exactly the correct
passwd to log in - no longer, no shorter.

if users change their passwd using yppasswd, the
passwd is truncated to 8 char and you can type
anything after the 8th char to log on.

i have been googling around and it seems that there is
no way to work around it. that message might be old
and i hope that there should be a way to make users
type exactly the correct passwd to log in today.

thanks 
cheng
